Veritas® Twin-Screw Vise

This is the only non-racking full-width end vise on the market. You can clamp anything anywhere in the vise and the jaws stay parallel.

The chain drive ensures parallelism and eliminates the racking common in other vises. It can be operated using either handle.

Even better, a spring-loaded lock pin lets you disengage the chain for controlled jaw skewing needed to equalize pressure on slightly out-of-square work. Rows of dog holes in the bench top and the side skirts give you clamping capacity equal to the length of your bench plus 12" (the clamping capacity of the vise). This lets you clamp pieces horizontally or vertically.

To build the vise, you will require two hardwood jaws. The vise is an easy retrofit to an existing bench, requiring only the addition of two pieces: an end cap drilled for the vise nuts and fixing bolts, plus the vise jaw itself.

Veritas® Twin-Screw Vise

As a result of customer feedback, we have changed from a plastic to an aluminum chain cover consisting of two cast end caps and a bridging extrusion. However, unlike its predecessor, the cover is not telescoping and must be cut to length for mounting at other than the maximum spacing. Instead, the vise is available in two models. The standard vise accommodates vise screw centers up to 16-7/8". For anyone requiring wider jaw capacity, the second model accommodates vise screw centers up to 24", with sufficient chain to match. The two vise screws, nuts, chain cover, wooden handles and all installation hardware are included with complete mounting instructions. (A 1-1/2" bit is needed to drill four holes.)

Excellent value in a powerful vise.

Patented.

Made in Canada.

*For those of you who would like to retrofit your Twin-Screw vise with the new aluminum cover, we offer cover kits separately. To retrofit an installed vise, the existing front jaw must extend at least 3/8" below the current plastic cover. Vise jaws that don't have the required depth will require modification (select Instr in the price line below).
